Next week I have a 6.5 hour layover (5:25pm to 11:55pm local time). Is this enough time to get a visa, leave the airport and checkout the downtown for a bit, and make it back in time? I am planning to pay for the Oryx Lounge so I can get a shower and drop off my carry-on.
Is this a bad idea? I am American and I have traveled to Asia before (Singapore, Malaysia, China, etc), so it isn't like this will be my first time in a new place, but I will be alone. Do taxi drivers speak English? There are reasons this could be a bad idea, but I will probably never be back there again and would like to see the skyline, grab a bite to eat, etc.
How long would it take to get somewhere interesting and back. How long can I expect security back in and the acquisition of a visa to take?
